Refuelling a hydrogen vehicle is no different to that of refuelling a conventional LPG car. Like what you see at a petrol station, a gas pump is used to refuel these vehicles with hydrogen with the same refueller locking system as LPG vehicles.

Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are driven by an electrochemical reaction inside a fuel cell. Hydrogen, the most energy dense element in the universe, splits in two to generate electricity and then recombines with oxygen to produce water. This electricity is used to power the vehicle’s electric motors. This means hydrogen cars are electric, too!

The Australian Commonwealth government has set a target for hydrogen to cost A$2.80 per kilogram by 2030. This means refuelling a 6.2-kilogram tank could cost as little as A$17.50.

Whilst battery electric vehicles are a mature technology and larger market penetration, hydrogen-powered cars outperform them on a variety of key metrics and are set to overtake them in the near future.

  • Faster refuelling time: hydrogen vehicles take 3-5 minutes to refuel, while battery electric cars take 30 minutes to 12 hours.
  • Longer driving range: Hydrogen vehicles can travel up to 750 kilometres without needing to refuel, while electric cars only travel, on average, 270 kilometres.
  • Lightweight: Hydrogen vehicles are considerably lighter than battery electric vehicles for similar ranges, making them a perfect for our heavy vehicle and commercial vehicle users.

Hydrogen fuel cells are built to last a lifetime. Meaning you can expect your hydrogen powered car to drive for up to 240,000–320,000 kilometres. Once the fuel cell is no longer operational, it is easily disassembled so the materials can be recycled or the unit refurbished to continue it’s life in the existing vehicle or another one.

Not to the same extent as may be present with petrol, under extreme conditions, like with any fuel source there is the capability for explosion, however because hydrogen is 14 times lighter than air, if there is any leak with the tank, the gas will just dissipate into the atmosphere in an upwards motion sending any potential impact away from passengers. In fact, hydrogen can be safer than petrol or diesel. Petrol and diesel have lower auto-ignition temperatures and are more combustible than hydrogen.

Yes, but not a lot. Hydrogen Fuel Cells merge Oxygen with Hydrogen and thus require strong filtration systems (removing harmful elements from the air as the vehicle drives) and these systems use air compressors to move the air, so there is a gentle air rush that is prevalent in the operation of the vehicle.

Hydrogen cars are the vehicle of the future, with the sector set to reach a valuation of US $46.89 billion by 2028. Currently, Australian State and Federal governments are investing vast amounts of money into building a national hydrogen industry. For example, the Australian Commonwealth has developed a National Hydrogen Strategy, and the New South Wales State Government has committed to a A$3 billion plan to establish green ‘hydrogen hubs’ in regional areas.

It takes 3-5 minutes to refuel a hydrogen car. Like at a petrol station, you use a fuel pump, making it is safe, easy and quick. In fact, the car refuels itself! Connect the pump, and the bowser does the rest of the work, automatically shutting off once the tank it full.

The H2X Warrego is assembled in Australia. Our mission is to create an internationally competitive manufacturing industry in this country.

Some parts for the Warrego are sourced in Australia and this will grow as the production matures and testing on localised components is passed, while others are from overseas companies in countries like Thailand, United States and Korea.

The Warrego can reach speeds of up to 150kph and accelerates to 100kph in 8 seconds.

The Warrego has a towing capacity of 2,500 kilograms.

The Warrego motor has 220KW of pure Aussie power behind it.

The extended-range Warrego has a driving range of up to 750 kilometres before needing to be refuelled.
